Being a young mother and a native of Miami, “Mrs. Alaina” believes in the benefit of providing children with dual language learning from the very beginning. This belief has led her to start her journey as a songwriter and co-author for the new Tu y Yo Music Series. This bilingual curriculum is designed for toddlers and includes the use of both English and Spanish languages by using music activities that engage children in singing, focused listening, movement and the playing of rhythm instruments. Mrs. Lorenzo hopes to be able to inspire children and parents in this new endeavor to provide each child with a rich experience in both music and language that work together to help each child reach their fullest potential!
